God damn this game was awesome. This game had such a powerful setting - a russian-occupied New York city. I remember how the time would progress through the game, seeing your character's hair grow and his outfit getting messier and trashier. You'd use fast travel through sewers to get back to your main HQ, where your fellow renegades and freedom fighters would hang. Oh man. I miss this game so dearly. To this day, I didn't know it was made by IO interactive, the guys behind Hitman. And now it seems so obvious, since the two games shared the same engine/looks. Anyways, this game was pretty much a sleeper hit, no one played it around me but my friends, whom I forced to play and then fell in love it it.
Anyone of you guys played this, circa 2003? I really wish you could legally download this game nowadays, like on steam or something. Was such a great experience. I could dream of a sequel, but how would it fit by today's standards? What kind of game could it be?
Also, it had one hell of a soundtrack, courtesy of Jesper Kyd : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOCpvHnGvNE
